What got you into cosplay?
Seeing Yuna's staff on ebay!!!!! It was so cool, I had to make one. Then after playing through FFX I became obsessed with Rikku and... thus my saga continues! ^^
What was your first costume and why?
Yuna from FFX,
she WAS my favorite character and I thought from the FFX back box art that she had red hair. LMAO!!!
What is your favorite costume and why?
My second costume, Rikku from FFX.
Because I love Rikku, she's my favoritist of favoritist characters ever! Everything on that costume came out the way I expected it to, and the shirt now is this awesome thick vinyl stuff! <3
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd love to make Ignis's Wedding Dress from Jingai Makyou or Rikku's Machina Maw from FFX-2, WITH the giant machina. ^^
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Lol, the first time I stepped outside the safety of the Anaheim Convention Center and had lunch with my friends at Dennys in costume! <3
Do you participate in masquerades?
